It was a banner year for Netflix in 2020, with some of the biggest hits the streamer's ever put out. As the streaming industry leader, Netflix rolls into 2021 riding high, with almost 200 million subscribers. Naturally, to launch a brand new year requires some kickass content, and Netflix is providing with another massive group of releases. So, what's coming to Netflix in January 2021? Let's get to it.

Netflix is kicking off the new year with actual kicks as Cobra Kai Season 3 rolls into the dojo. The series, which was initially a YouTube Original, transferred both Seasons 1 and 2 over to the popular streaming service in mid-2020, where it fared very well. The third season, the first under the Netflix banner, will join them for another round of the competition.

But that's only the tip of the iceberg. January will also bring Netflix's adaptation of Fate: The Winx Saga, a teen-oriented fantasy series adventure. New seasons of series like Disenchantment and Carmen Sandiego are set to arrive, as well as reality competition favorites like Blown Away and ¡Nailed It! México, which will turn up mid-month. Plus, there are new movies, including Outside the Wire, The White Tiger, and Penguin Bloom, the latter of which arrives at the end of the month.
